Billing Disclaimer

Billing Rights Summary

In case of error or inquiries about your bill, send your inquiry in writing on a separate sheet so that the University receives it within 60 days after the bill was mailed to you. Your written inquiry must include:

  1. Your name and account number;
  2. A description of the error and why (to the extent that you can explain) you believe it is in error, or If you need more information, a description of the item you are unsure about; and
  3. The dollar amount of the suspected error.

You remain obligated to pay the items of your bill not in dispute, but you do not have to pay any amount in dispute during the time the University is resolving the dispute. During that same time, the University may not take any action to collect disputed amounts or report disputed amounts as past due.

Accounts in Delinquent Status

  • Registration, transcripts, and the release of diplomas will be prohibited.
  • The University will pursue collection action and may authorize legal action to affect the settlement of an account. You will be liable for all reasonable collection costs including attorney fees and other charges, which are necessary for the collection of a past due amount.

Public University Tuition Statement Act, 110 ILCS 63/10

For fiscal year 2018, the General Assembly and the Governor authorized the aggregate amount of $1.1 billion to be appropriated from the General Revenue Fund and the Education Assistance Fund for operation of the State's public universities. For fiscal year 2018, each resident undergraduate full-time public university student received an average tuition subsidy of $3,263 from the State of Illinois, which was applied to offset the full cost of instruction.

Terms of Payment

UI-Pay account balances are expected to be paid in full by the due date. These charges, in accordance with University of Illinois Policy, apply to all customers billed through the Student Accounts Receivable system, and are subject to a late payment charge of $1.00 or 1.5%, whichever is greater, per month on any amount not paid when due. Account balances 60 days or more past due will be assessed a past due charge of $2.00 per month in addition to the late payment charge.

Student Loan Recipients

You have the right to cancel all or part of any student loan funds credited to your account. The Office of Student Financial Aid must be informed of your wish to reduce or cancel these loans within 14 days of receipt of this statement. These funds have been used to pay your current financial obligation to the University of Illinois.
